Could it be a continuing spirit birth basis?]]>
Jacob seems to imply that Jesus is the saviour for those who are descended from Adam (inhabitants of this earth):
“[He] cometh into the world that he may save all men if they will hearken unto his voice; for behold, he suffereth the pains of all men, yea, the pains of every living creature, both men, women, and children, who belong to the family of Adam.” (2 Ne. 9:21)
I posit the question, does God need to have an infinite number of spirit children?]]>
Steve S., Good thoughts, again I appreciate other people’s insights and thoughts…thanks]]>
I think we’re in way past our depth here…
For what it’s worth, I don’t know if it is useful to discuss how many planets Jesus Christ has made. You are making assumptions about the individual that makes planets when all we know is that “God” was talking to Moses in those scriptures. The voice of God seems to represent the unified divine persons that make up what the scriptures call the One God. So we do not know the role of Jesus in that process specifically.
Also, we know very little about this council in heaven. I personally believe the concept is symbolic of the choice free agents must make between good and evil throughout eternity — not a big meeting as it is commonly represented. Therefore, we are still in the middle of that council right now.
Last, I think that every world likely does follow the same basic script of our world and each has a savior. (The course of the Lord is one eternal round…)]]>
If you think about it, more than any other source, the Temple limits the scope of the atonement to this one planet. The fall was a possibility and in the instance that they would transgress the law, God would provide an Atonement. We know that the events of the Garden were not singular.]]>
